The Josiah White II Canal Boat Ride & Museum
The 48-ton Josiah White II canal boat plies the waters of old Section 8 of the Lehigh Canal in Hugh Moore Park. Trained and authentically-dressed crew interprets the story of the anthracite canals and the people who worked and lived on them. Two mules – Hank and George – tow the boat on a leisurely trip from the National Canal Museum to the Locktender’s House and back. Tours run rain or shine, except during thunderstorms or high winds. The canal boat is wheelchair accessible. This event is appropriate for children. To ensure the health, safety, and enjoyment of everyone, the boat rides have limited capacity and socially-distanced seating. Masks are required while onboard.
Please bring water & snacks to fuel your body. Dress appropriately for the weather, hat and sunblock if needed.
